Keeping Our Community Safe and Healthy

Dear Friends of Komen Inland Empire,

On behalf of the Komen Inland Empire team, I would like give you an update regarding how our organization is moving forward regarding COVID-19 and public safety. We are continuing to monitor the situation as updates and guidelines unfold from local and federal health agencies.

We recognize this is a challenging and uncertain time for everyone–especially for those we love in our community who are battling serious illness. We remain deeply committed to the health and safety of those we serve, our partners, donors, volunteers, and treasured advocates.

Our work does not stop in light of this new challenge—breast cancer is still impacting lives across our two county service area and it is our duty to continue to serve and protect those in our community who are most vulnerable. Our team is working closely with community partners to build a plan for how we will continue to fund and provide necessary resources that help those in need fight breast cancer in this new climate.

Furthermore, in accordance with recent guidelines set by California Governor Gavin Newsom, Komen Inland Empire office will be closed until further notice. Our team will be working from home and can take your calls during our regular operating hours Monday – Friday 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. You can always email info@komenie.org as a starting point and your message will be forwarded to the appropriate team member for support.

As we continue to monitor our rapidly changing environment, we will make the best choices we can for our services and programs. To learn of any changes, please look to our website and social media platforms (Facebook and Instagram) for updates.

We will continue to work closely with our community and corporate partners regarding upcoming special events and initiatives.

You are the heart and soul of this movement and I look forward to rallying with you in the persistent and unwavering fight against breast cancer. With your support, we will continue to bring invaluable breast health services and education programs to those in our community who need them most.

If you have any questions, please give us a call at 951-676-7465 or email info@komenie.org. I also encourage you to reach out to the Komen National Helpline (1-877 GO KOMEN) for breast health support. You can also access these CDC’s guidelines for additional recommendations.

Thank you again for your support and understanding during this time. Take care of yourselves and one another. We will get through this together!

 

Sincerely,
